Textile Design Lab Member Highlight: British Columbia

Claire Mounier - ClaireMounier

Collection by Claire Mounier

It’s the final week of our eight week Summer of Creativity journey in the Textile Design Lab, and what a fun summer it has been!! The theme for the course this year is travel, and each week we have explored a new “destination” with our members. We have visited Cape CodJapanMalaysia & SingaporeScotlandScandinaviaWest Africa, and last week we explored the amazing wilderness of British Columbia.

We focused on the quilting fabric market and provided two directions for our members to play with, inspired by the great outdoors, camping, and the forest: quilting fabrics geared toward kids, and a more sophisticated approach that is appropriate for adults’ home sewing projects.

Our members created the patterns and collections you see here in just one week, and we absolutely love what they came up with! Congrats to all the members who completed last week’s brief and I can’t wait to share our final round of Summer of Creativity patterns with you next week!
